Sometimes you just can't beat a bottle of cheap cider. I love the one that Sainsbury's does. We buy it in a two litre sized plastic bottle for £1.30 at our small local shop and both me and my dear other half love the stuff. I love all things fizzy, and if they have a bit of alcohol in them, all the better I say. We love to drink a bottle each of this cider on a Friday or a Saturday night in front of the TV. If the weather is nice after I get back from work we will go out the back after we have got the little lad down for the night, and drink into the night as we share a couple of bottles, a pack of Silk Cut and light a couple of candles the back garden. ...

Having grown up in the West Country and experienced my first really bad hangover on farm made scrumpy cider, I have always been rather wary of cider - particularly the strong type as it doesn't seem to agree with me. However, there does seem to be resurgence in cider drinking thesedays and I have been tempted by, but not yet succumbed to, the heavily branded new ciders, now so popular. Before I do this, I will need to have something to compare it to, so whilst laying in a temporary stock of beer the other day, I also bought a 2l bottle of this Basics cider for £1.69 - just on a whim to see whether I still had a bad reaction to cider. The 2l ... Read the complete review

I went to Sainsburys recently and thought I might save myself a couple of quid by trying their cheapest cider. Sainsbury's Basics cider comes in a 2 litre PET bottle with a screw cap, it has an alcohol content of 4.2% and contains Artifical Sweeteners and Sulphites. Looking at the colour of the cider through the bottle it does give the illusion of looking quite dark in colour but this is due to the bottle having a yellow tinge. I unscrewed the bottle and released a rather unpleasant smell of chemicals, the cider is quite fizzy and is a pale yellow in colour. I have to admit that I was not looking forward to trying this due to the smell and rather ... Read the complete review

It might be getting into Autumn, but the weather here has still been really very hot - in fact, I honestly don't think I've seen any rain in over two weeks now . Now, hot weather demands cold drinks, and what better on a warm evening than an ice cold bottle of quality booze. Sadly, my budget doesn't really stretch to quality booze at the moment - I recently had to replace my fridge freezer, which has left me a little tight, but on the plus side , if I buy some CHEAP booze , at least I have something to chill it in . I've been doing a bit of an experimental supermarket swap after many reviews on Sainsburys basics products convinced me it might not be ... Read the complete review

You would expect Sainsbury's basics cider to be, how shall we put it, somewhat unpalatable? But when we bought some on a budget one time (we were staying at Reading music festival at the time) and were surprised. I don't actually drink cider much these days but the cider-drinker of my past self is speaking to you and saying that this one isn't at all bad. We preferred it to the Strongbow we were drinking at the same time... whether that says more about Sainsbury's basics cider or Strongbow is in the eye of the review reader but we definitely found the former much more drinkable. The Strongbow had a harsh kind of taste which wasn't present in the Sainsbury's ... Read the complete review
